Update: If you read through you will find that renaming widgets was the issue.
Up to now I have been working with Dev Edition v1.1 and wanted to try migrating to v1.3. When I ran into trouble, I tried migrating to v1.2 where I did not encounter this error:
My project has 2 custom widgets that I developed, but only one of them fails. A third widget that also fails is simply a copy of the argis-map widget that I renamed and made a few changes in mapbase.tsx to disable all navigation (replacing/enhancing the functionality of the disable zoom scrolling option). All 3 custom widgets worked correctly in v1.3 when I tested them in a new ExB project. Again, I have no problems migrating to v1.2.
I also see errors in the server command window:
Any thoughts regarding this would be appreciated.
Solved! Go to Solution.
To change a widget name, you need to:
1. Stop webpack in client
2. Change the folder name
3. Change the name in manifest.json
4. Change the reference in apps/#/config.json and apps/#/resource/config.json (one config is for published version, one config is for draft version)
5. Start webpack
Look in your browser console if the loading of the API isn't blocked du to CORS request.
I had the same issue, until i enabled CORS requests on my server.
I am running the developer edition on a pc (IIS turned on, of course). Here are the errors from the console:
What made you think that enabling CORS was the answer?
I had a similar issue with the same prompt error message. But it seems to be different in your case.
I may ask a basic question but, are the file from the 404 error accessible from file explorer in client/dist/widgets ?
The only way , I could reproduce your error was to delete/empty the manifest file into the Widget.
Are you Widget in the client/your-extensions/widget repository ?
Is your client side started on NPM ?
Thanks for trying that Alexis. The answer is a definitive yes to both questions. I have not tried enabling CORS yet. Developer Edition has been installed on a PC. We have a new IT director and he has recently taken away our administrator access to PCs. I cannot run IIS Manager anymore and am waiting to hear back from a system administrator (who is now overloaded due stricter policies).
As I told Alexis above, web pack was running. I tried it many things and restarted web pack repeatedly to try those different things. Also, as stated in the original post, one of my custom widgets did work correctly. Custom widgets for a different application worked correctly too.
